Another great collection of UK beat music from the 60s has been released by the same team which brought you When Night Comes Down, which featured Just One More Chance.
   Fab Gear draws heavily from the vaults of Pye Records and sister label Piccadilly, and focuses on the scene’s later gems from 1965/66, which were often musically superior to those earlier works.
   The six-CD box set offers around 180 tracks in chronological order from the mid-1960s, and includes many of the era’s biggest names such as The Kinks, The Moody Blues, The Searchers, Marmalade and The Tremeloes.
   The Outer Limits are represented by the rocking Any Day Now and its killer riff.
   A hefty booklet boasts band-by-band histories and details of each recording.
